[1748] On the 26th of 6th mo., 1742, the Preparative Meeting “agreed to wall ye graveyard with stone and Joseph Gilbert, Evan Thomas, Jonathan Knight, and Daniel Knight, were appointed to provide materials, employ workman, and see ye work  done.” From some further accounts it would seem as if this wall was built until 1748, and that the northwest end was left open so as to extend the yard in that direction. Friends at this time offered the privilege of buring to all who in any way assisted in the matter, and to their children; and several took advantage of this proposition.

OBITUARY: William Allen Knight III, M.D. was born in St. Louis, MO on Dec. 15, 1946 and died Mar. 16, 2009 at the age of 62. He graduated from St. Louis Country Day School 1964 and subsequently attended Union College in New York, receiving a B.S. in Psychology in 1968. He then received his M.D. from St. Louis University School of Medicine in 1973 and completed a 3-year Internal Medicine residency with St. Louis University Hospitals in 1975. He dedicated his medical career to understanding the causes of and caring for those afflicted with breast cancer, starting with medical oncology fellowship training at, respectively, M.D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute in Houston, TX and the University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHSC) in San Antonio, TX. During his years on faculty in the Oncology Division at UTHSC in San Antonio, he became a world-renowned breast cancer scholar and educator, conducting and publishing landmark research on, for example, the estrogen receptor as an independent prognostic factor for early recurrence of breast cancer. Among many significant professional accomplishments, he was a member of the 1979 US-USSR Delegation in Moscow, an emeritus member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and holds a patent for oncology treatment methods. In 1989, Good Housekeeping Magazine honored him as one of the best breast cancer physicians in the United States.
